Completely updated for its Fourth Edition, this atlas provides detailed, step-by-step instructions on procedures performed in the neonatal intensive care nursery. In an easy-to-follow outline format, with more than 450 drawings and clinical photographs, the book presents clear, current information on indications, preparation, technique, precautions, and how to avoid potential complications.

More than 150 of this edition's illustrations are in full color. New chapters cover transcutaneous bilirubin testing, auditory screening, relocation of a dislocated nasal septum, management of natal and neonatal teeth, and lingual frenotomy.

An accompanying DVD (by Alfonso Vargas, III, MD, Maj, ASAF) provides seven videos: umbilical line placement, paracentesis, PICC placement, venous blood draw, endotracheal intubation, endotracheal intubation, part II, and sterile gown and glove. The DVD also includes three animations: exchange transfusion, emergency evacuation of air leaks, and endotracheal intubation.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
New edition of an atlas that provides a step-by-step approach to procedures performed in the neonatal intensive care nursery. MacDonald (pediatrics, George Washington U. School of Medicine) and Ramasethu (pediatrics, Georgetown U. Hospital) present contributions by 40 experts who cover a range of topics including procedures that can be performed at the beside in an intensive-care setting, as well those requiring a skilled surgeon (such as gastrostomy and tracheostomy). New to this edition are six chapters offering guidance on new procedures; detailed instructions describing necessary equipment, precautions, indications, and possible complications; and important information addressing risk management, quality assurance, and performance improvement. Extensively illustrated with color and b&w photographs and radiographs. Spiral binding. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jay P. Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine)
Description: This is the fifth edition (4th edition published in 2007) of a now standard book in neonatal procedures. The book covers almost every conceivable procedure performed in the neonatal intensive care unit, and the companion CD has been replaced with a website with excellent videos of several procedures.
Purpose: The purpose is to offer guidance for procedures performed on fragile neonates, usually in the neonatal intensive care unit. Many of these procedures are infrequently performed and the skill level of the providers may benefit from this reference. The use of simulators is emphasized as well as the paramount goal of patient safety. The book certainly meets the editor's objectives.
Audience: The audience is neonatal healthcare providers, from nurse practitioners and residents to staff physicians and nurses, and the book is written at an appropriate level for all of these potential users.
Features: Divided into sections on physiological monitoring, blood and miscellaneous sampling, vascular access, tube replacement, and other miscellaneous procedures, the book covers virtually all procedures performed on neonates. An excellent introductory section covers consent, restraint, analgesia, and sedation, among other topics. New chapters in this edition review bubble CPAP (with an accompanying video on the website), therapeutic hypothermia, and the use of simulation-based procedural training. Excellent photographs and diagrams help readers understand various anatomic relationships and procedural directions. Each edition of this book has continued to improve the didactic content and illustrations.
Assessment: This is the standard reference in the field of neonatology for the performance of procedures and their complications. It is a must have for any neonatal unit, especially units in which training of residents, fellows, or practitioners is ongoing.
